U.S. Military. This caricatures activity is a unique way for your students to celebrate Veterans Day, Memorial Day, or simply as a fun way to honor those in the U.S. military. Your students can create a soldier caricature by tracing over different features already created in this packet so they can decorate the classroom or hallways! Each one of these original features can be combined to make a variety of characters. All branches of the military are included!

6 different bodies - Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and a Traditional Female Dress Uniform with skirt and heels [I included this as an option even though many female members of the military are now choosing to wear the same outfit as the men have worn to show equality]. There are also 4 face shapes, 12 eyebrows, 12 eyes, 8 different mouths, 12 noses, 6 sets of ears, 1 crew-cut hair, 1 curly black hair, 1 hair parted on the side, 1 female hair pulled back in a bun (2 sizes), 1 helmet (2 different sizes), 1 captain's hat, 1 drill sergeant hat, and 1 sailor hat.

Using tracing paper works best, but you can still see the shapes under regular printer paper and trace over them with enough lighting (sometimes using a window works well too...if their arms don't get too tired). Students simply put their paper over the body they chose and trace the features, same for the face, eyes, ears, noses, mouths, etc.
